Already released the new software....unload the 528mod and run the new 119mod. Sorry, no setting for that cause indoor carpet is over here....325 foot 1/8th outdoor track for mod on road is the way to go now....

Let us know if you find a good setup...and I can post of SP site.

P.S...1 piece of advise, when running 12th scale....turn off lipo cutoff and turn off thermal..............I never use any of these setting, I just don't like any FALSE alert that could cause me the race...especially the 8 mins main...you are running the lipo and esc down....who cares about the thermal cutoff warning..?

Hi Solara, do you have a good starting point for 119mod firmware on touring cars?

I'm currently running a 6.5 Turns SP v3 on a GT2.1 prostock esc.

Thanks!

I have a 13.5 V3 and the sensor wire port moves a bit too freely. If I connect the sensor wire the tension of that wire will actually move the sensor board. Is there a way to keep the sensor board in place? I have seen the video on the Speed Passion site that shows how to take the motor apart and mine does in fact have the two rubber gaskets/grommets. Not sure how to keep the sensor board from moving on its own.

I had a similar issue, I simply cut out a thin piece of cardboard and placed it between the sensor board and rear housing, to make a snug fit. Worked perfectly.

thanks for the advise...
i'll test the 119, if i can run it fast in 8-min and i can still place my finger on the ESC heatsink after the run , i'll post my set-up.

thanks again...

Sorry, I don't...but I would guess this is a good starting point. (Depends on the size of track...)

5* (middle) timing on 6.5 V3 motor, should use silver purple rotor RM13802NA
FDR 7.0~7.5
DRRS Level 7 or 8
Boost Timing = 16*
Slope = 18*/0.1s
SC Timing = 10*
Boost start RPM = 8000
Delay (depends on track length) = 0.2s or more...
Boost Timing Acc = 500rpm/degree (just a guess...)

Give that a try...if it is good, come back and let us know...and I will post it on SP website...thanks.

Thanks, I'll try your suggestions this sunday

BTW what's the difference between stock rotor and RM13802NA?

You need a new sensor holding unit like this one...

I would only recommand the silver purple rotor IF your track is big enough...I don't want to go to the detail, all I know is....FASTER (when I used it on large outdoor track).

If it is any good...please share your setup with us, thanks.
I too would love to use BOOST and slower motor and compare with the straight software (no boost/sc) with 4.0T motor...my guess is, boost 6.5 is just as fast as 4.0T but with better low-end (infield) performance then 4.0T.

Well my track isn't really big, the main straight is about 35m, but on race day it's sprayed with sugar so traction is always medium/high... I'll give that a try. Thank you!

Infact, you should try the ABOVE testing...he too running 6.5 but with 323STOCK...even faster then 119mod.
